Problem connecting vSphere client to either ESXi or ESX host

Jump to solution

I have tried this with both an ESXi host as well as an ESX host. I have switched the install on one box between both hypervisors, as well as trying on a different box. I have redownloaded both hypervisors and checked to see they match the checksums, I have reinstalled the vSphere client from fresh downloads from both the host as well as from www.vmware.com/downloads.

Every time I try to connect to a host I get the same error. First I get:

Error parsing the server "192.168.2.195" "clients.xml" file. Login will continue, contact your system administrator.

After clicking OK, I get this error:

The type initializer for 'VirtualInfrastructure.Utils.HttpWebRequestProxy' threw an exception.

I would appreciate an suggestions or an explanation of what the issue is.

Thanks!

This is not problem with host server, it more over problem IE7. Check the KB 1011329 from Vmware
